Jooste: Ruan will be first choice


Written by Wesley Weber (wpw)

Ruan Pienaar, Morne Steyn and Earl Rose are set to be the three flyhalves in the Springbok squad for the British and Irish Lions Test series, with Pienaar likely to fight off Steyn’s challenge for a starting spot.

A 28-man Bok squad will be announced tonight in Johannesburg, and despite Steyn displaying great form for the Bulls during their triumphant Super 14 campaign, Pienaar is the favourite to wear the No 10 jersey against the Lions.

Ashfak Mohamed reports for IOL that Springbok selection convener Peter Jooste told the Cape Times yesterday that while Steyn has “done well”, Pienaar is the incumbent Bok flyhalf.

“Morne has really done well for himself this season with the Bulls,” he said.

“He has come through the structures and represented junior national teams.”

“But Ruan is the man in position at the moment. Morne does have a different style to Ruan, and I read somewhere that (Bok coach) Peter de Villiers said Morne can make a difference, and I agree that he offers us that.”

Steyn would be desperately unlucky if he misses out on a Bok starting spot, as he showed this year that he has the ability to vary his game and mix it up, depending on the situation.

He is a superb kicker and good distributor of the ball, while he is also not shy to take the ball up himself.

He has finally come out of the Loftus shadow of Derick Hougaard and become the darling of Pretoria.

Steyn is also able to slot vital drop kicks at critical times, as he has shown at the Bulls recently, and he ended the Super 14 as the leading points-scorer with 191, 50 more than Chiefs pivot Stephen Donald. Steyn kicked a record 11 drop kicks this season.

Pienaar is a talented footballer and is skilful, but has been hampered by injury this season. His Super 14 campaign for the Sharks has been stop-start, so he has not been able to build up momentum and play himself into top form this year.

Rose reportedly performed well at flyhalf in the second half of the South African XV’s 36-7 victory over a Namibian Invitation XV in Windhoek last Friday.

Rose started at fullback and replaced Peter Grant at No 10 for the second half. Grant apparently did not impress in the first half, and is set to miss out on the Bok squad for the Lions series.

Bulls fullback Zane Kirchner is likely to edge out Stefan Terblanche for a place in the Bok squad and is set to start at No 15 in the Tests as well.

Utility back Francois Steyn has also recovered from injury and will be part of the Bok group named tonight, but he will provide cover for the entire backline.

Jooste said yesterday that Kirchner has improved immensely this season at the Bulls.

“Zane is a confident player. He can kick, run and pass well and is a well-rounded player,” he said.

“He’s got it as a player. The Super 14 is the closest level of play to Test rugby and he has done well there, so I think he can make it as a Test player.”

Jooste said that the 28-man squad will be used for all three Tests. “Those will be the guys for all three Tests, but because we are at home, we can call on any extra guys if the need arises,” he said.

Possible 28-man Springbok Squad

Zane Kirchner, Francois Steyn, JP Pietersen, Adrian Jacobs, Jaque Fourie, Jean de Villiers, Wynand Olivier, Bryan Habana, Jongi Nokwe, Ruan Pienaar, Morne Steyn, Earl Rose, Fourie du Preez, Ricky Januarie, Pierre Spies, Ryan Kankowski, Juan Smith, Schalk Burger, Heinrich Brussow, Danie Rossouw, Victor Matfield, Andries Bekker, Bakkies Botha, John Smit (capt), Bismarck du Plessis, Adriaan Strauss, Beast Mtawarira, Gurthro Steenkamp.

    When I first heard about that from a mate this am, i thought it was Frans Steyn :sad:

    IF PdV Does go with Ruan ahead of Steyn then I hope Ruan is 100% fit and not still recovering. We need the best in the spot and at the moment Steyn is the best.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 1) : Totally agree and his confidence is High, if he slots three drops against the lions per match he would be in my side Ruan is not exactly bursting with confidence at the moment, well in his last game anyway. I am not entirely sure he is 100% fit??

  • @wpw (Comment 3) :

    Well if Steyn and PdV had a go at each other as the article suggest then Steyn WILL probabaly miss out. :wink:

    But why would they want to include Bosman???????? You have enough centers available already.

    Coach likely to provide surprises today

    CHEETAHS centre Meyer Bosman and Sharks prop Deon Carstens could be two of the surprise selections on the Springbok squad for the British & Irish Lions series, due to be named tonight.

    Coach Peter de Villiers is satisfied that Carstens has overcome injury, and Bosman’s value as a versatile operator in just about any backline position is likely to earn him the nod.

    Bulls flyhalf Morne Steyn is to make his first Springbok squad after his heroics in the Super14 that saw him end as the tournament’s leading points-scorer with 191, which included a record 11 drop goals in one season. Bulls team-mate Zane Kirchner should also earn a call-up as the only genuine fullback in the squad.

    The biggest casualty is likely to be Stormers flyhalf Peter Grant, and there is speculation that utility back Frans Steyn will also miss out on selection after bumping heads with De Villiers over his potential move to France.

    The pair apparently had a falling out over Steyn’s perceived “threat” of taking up a lucrative offer with Paris club Racing Metro, if he couldn’t be promised a position in the squad. To compound matters, Steyn is struggling with a knee injury and it remains unclear whether he will be fit for the Lions series anyway.

    De Villiers is likely to name a 28-man squad for the series, although players initially left out could come into the reckoning in the coming weeks.

    Carstens’ potential inclusion is good news as the squad lacks genuine tighthead cover for captain John Smit. The Bok skipper is pencilled in to occupy the No 3 jersey in the series, and Carstens is perfect for inclusion on the bench as he can play on either side of the scrum.

    Bosman is one of the best distributors in SA, and, while he’s unlikely to force his way into the starting XV, he provides useful cover from the bench. He is also a noted goal-kicker.

  • There is no way that PdV can justify selecting Ruan over Morne on form….how much of Ruan has he seen in the Super 14??… and Morne is brimming of confidence at the moment.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 25) : except that, when the SA XV training squad was announced, it was specifically mentioned that Deon Carstens was unavailable due to injury… No mention of why Jannie wasn’t there – and he can also play on either side of the scrum, although he’s a far better tighthead. We have loosehead WELL covered with Beast and Goodthrow.

    hi guys & dudettes (if any) :mrgreen:

    I wouldn’t go with morne for a starter. specially not for his first outing in green and gold. taking nothing away from the guy, he’s i improved immensely, but how difficult it is to have a good game when your forwards and fairy have a blinder.

    and let me tell you the lions pack will be much much better than the chief’s. they were pushing nicely on saturday.

  • What will be very enlightening if it could be included is all the agents next to the names of all bok selections :smile: coz sometimes the province the oke is playing can be so misleading.

  • I’d start with Ruan, if things goes bad then Morne can have a go, if things goes from bad to worse, throw Earl into the mix and if we still lose, we will know who to blame :mrgreen:

  • @JarsonX (Comment 69) : how do you justify 3 flyhalves in a match 22?

    …. you disguise one as a scrummy, other two as inside centre and fullback and then you can even lament that you do not have depth as a smoke screen. :-)

  • @robdylan (Comment 82) :

    No it can’t be because the .2 is from the 1BP for the closest pick being divided by the 5 players, so that equates to 0.2000000000000000 :wink:
